She married the late Louis Vert on June 20, 1941 and he preceded her in death in 1988. Frances and Louis moved to Williamsburg and operated Gays Garage for many years. She was a hard-working devoted wife, mother and friend. At a young age Frances taught her children the value to hard work; teaching them to tend to the family garden every day and cherry picking at very young ages. Also, Frances worked in the laundry department at the Days Inn for 15 years where she made many lifelong friends while working there. In her spare time Frances enjoyed gardening, writing, sketching, drawing, sewing, quilting and was an amazing baker. Her special soups, SOS that tasted like steak and every Sunday chicken dinner and lemon pies will be forever missed. Above all Frances will be remembered for her strong Catholic Faith. She was a devoted member to St. Francis Catholic Church since 1964.
